obama made it such a big deal four years ago. and mitt romney is trying to appropriate that. what's even more interesting about this closing argument is after the most negative campaign that we've seen probably in our lifetimes they are closing with a very soft sale to independent voters saying i can break the gridlock. it's ok that there are republicans, democrats. i'm going to be the one that can get us beyond that. it's two things, it's to appeal to independents. but another piece of it is the growing realization that congress is going to be divided regardless of who is elected as president and this next president has to deal with a divided government. gwen: i wonder how much of this is about economic development and the jobs numbers can play into that. people are saying they feel good about the economy even though they don't trust the president. >> i see these job numbers as basically being status quo. they can affect things in a big way. the decimal point kicked up one point but the actual job number was a little higher than forecasted. mitt romney has won the economy, not by a huge

. three of those four would give obama the presidency. so the romney campaign knows they're going to have to answer questions about this on the sunday shows tomorrow and on the final days of the race. they circulated a confidential memo to top republican leaders and surrogates. we got our hands on it. this is what they're saying. they're saying they're putting the obama campaign on defense. quote, mitt romney is up or tied with obama in every key battleground state forcing obama on defense in states he won by double digits in 2008 like wisconsin, iowa, michigan, minnesota, and pennsylvania. with the campaigns even on the ground and in early vote, gop enthusiasm is going to carry romney to victory. they're saying energy is on their side and look where obama is campaigning. the reality here is just because the obama campaign is playing defense that still doesn't mean they're going to lose those states. you can play defense and still win. so this is what the romney campaign is talking about today. >> what are both campaigns saying about their chances in ohio during these final few days? >> w

romney which is what romney's going to do for the next four years to grow the economy. there's nothing fundamental has changed. this economy is the worst ever, energy prices are not down and people are living the same life they lived four years ago. so that's what this race is about. not the polls. >> look, first of all, president obama won by 7.3 last time so he doesn't have the duplicate what he did in 2008 to win. secondly, there's a way that romney can win without ohio, but it takes a very complicated formula to do that. and you know, i think on the whole, i think democrats are pretty satisfied with the position they're in right now. if you had said a year ago that enthusiasm would be equal among democrats and republicans we certainly would have taken that following the 2010 election. but it's going down to the wire here. >> what about the ground game, james? how important is that in a place like ohio and i mean, the obama people seem to think they have a much better ground game than the romney campaign. >> well, they do, and if you look at some of these early voting things, really
